“The play is timeless … as a symbol of the abuses of power. It also deals with the strength of the human spirit to rise above the fear and pain.” Susan Brall, DC Metro Theater Arts
“It’s chaos vs order in a touching story of fear, courage, rebellion and heart. A dive into resisting the constructs of conformity and finding friendship with those with whom you least expect to find it.”
–Director Miguel Reyna
